Part of an Italian lifestyle coffee lounge chain, Testa scores on ambience, service and last, but certainly not the least, the food. On the ground floor at the Jubilee Hills outlet, there is wooden flooring and easy leather sofas. The informal ambience extends to the first floor, with a pool table and a shingled open air patio sit-out, besides indoor seating. Youngsters are hooked to hookahs on the terrace, making it feel like a teenagers' hangout. Coming to the beverages, you have just got to try the hot chocolate here, they are, in one word, divine. A thick (so much so that you might just need their unique dessert spoons to savour it better), creamy dark brown concoction, it comes in different flavours, mint, hazelnut, Irish cream, rum, orange, apple and cinnamon. The coffees (hot and cold) are also delectable, especially the Cafe Caramelo and Choco Moccochino in hot versions, and nice iced coffees are Cappuchino on High as well as the ICC Grooves. The coffee beans are in-house and come from Italy. The Wonton Rolls with Cottage Cheese and Mint filling served with garlic cream, as well as stuffed mushrooms, make for appetizing beginners and there are the Veg and Non-Veg Platters too. Pizzas, especially the thin crust ones, are excellently done. Try the Red And You if you are a vegetarian, and Pizza Que or BBQ Pizza if you are non-vegetarian. There are pastas and risottos too, good choices are the Penne Pasta in creamy mushroom sauce, seafood and chicken risotto. For bigger appetites, there are steaks too in vegetarian and non-vegetarian versions. For sweet endings, besides Choco Truffle Cake and Chocolate Brownies, the piece de resistance is the Tres Leches, creamy soft and moist, like a custard cake topped with peach and kiwi slices, priceless!!

Testa Rossa is an Italian coffee lounge which is established in multiple levels and has different seating arrangements that suites different crowds. Usually, I sit at the ground floor but in the evening the rooftop seating arrangement that has hookah facility also, feels great. Hot Chocolate of this café is a hit beverage that works like an antidepressant for me. On winter evenings I come here to have their delicious Cappuccino on High with Wonton Rolls. Their Barbeque pizza is also nice and filling. Testa Rossa is a big café with many things to eat and drink.
